Students aiming for Iron Māori

We have selected 8 senior students to train for Iron Māori Tamariki and Rangatahi (Aquathon and Triathlon) that is held annually down in Napier in December.
The tamariki event (age 10-12 yrs) consists of a 200m swim in Pandora Pond, followed by a 3km run and the Rangatahi event (age 13-17) consists of a 500m swim,  14km cycle, followed by a 3km run.

We have started training down at our local YMCA centre and are very grateful for the awesome manager and staff who lets us train during our lunch times using their fantastic facilities and equipment.

You can check out our triathletes individual profiles on their blog that has been created to share their journeys and progress.

We are all really excited about reppin' PES down at the awesome event that is IronMāori.
